“I can tell you that the experience at Lakeland… … I felt a strong God like anointing but… now… It speaks for its self.. I was healed for about a 24 period and then it lifted and not in a good way… “
This blog is very insightful to what’s going on with Todd Bentley:
Here’s an account of the Florida revival :
“I live in Clearwater. I am seeing first hand the fruits of this tree.
I responded to Andrew’s request to share what i’m witnessing down here from the members of the congregation that have attended. Mind you, I attend a very small congregation…about 70 people. It’s easy to observe in this context…and more than 1/2 are into this now.
I’ll give you just some examples of behaviours I’ve seen change from people who went:
They come back with this kind of childlike drunken stupor.
Descriptions of a burning sensation either in their veins, heads or stomachs.
Descriptions of being washed back and forth like the waves in the ocean
Dancing about like drunken fools in church.
Inappropriate yelling and screaming like they’re at a football game
Young men whistling over and over and holding their heads and claiming that they “feel the Holy Spirit about to split them in two”
One young man’s back two teeth turned completely to some metallic finish.
people with their eyes rolled in the back of their heads and weaving around like they’re lost.
People “speaking in tongues” but really just gibberish
Women just girating and pulsating like they’re being ravaged from behind from some unseen force. ( just made that connection as I wrote that…I believe that’s really what’s happening to them now)
Drunken uncontrollable laughter in the middle of a solemn prayer time (that doesn’t seem to bother anyone who’s been…but does to those who haven’t)
Normally gentle and docile women just immediately snap viciously if you suggest that the Lakeland revival may not be a good idea.
People who barely believed in gifts of prophecy now prophesying without hesitation some very self-serving messages.
People being “slain in the spirit”….just falling down and being unable to move. (like something’s holding them down.)
I’ve been nearly physically attacked by a woman I didn’t even know who overheard a conversation between myself and a brother at church because I said that the “revival” was a blasphemy. She ranted about how Todd Bentley was a man of god…i hadn’t even mentioned his name.
This has also happened at the church when I was lead to warn a couple of folks young in their walk with the Lord about not attending this. Again, I was jumped on by a bystander.
There was no love in that interaction, I can assure you.
The perspective that the Lord has given me physically on this is that they are actually being pushed down and pushed from behind by these evil sprirts. They’re actually coming back with the people as they’re being imparted in Lakeland “
